Hi Aurelie,

Do you mean, you need to block editing a custom field for all users or some users on Edit screen?

- If you mean blocking edition for all users, you can move this custom field out of Edit screen

- If you mean blocking editing for some users, JIRA doesn't provide this feature. Workaround: you can try Field Security Plug-in for JIRA
